Review by Zach Duvall for Your Last Rites.com
Imagine being an extreme metal fan in the New York-New Jersey region at the dawn of the 90s. It was far from the only booming death metal scene (you’ve heard of Florida, right?), but there was quite a bit to please the ears. Out on Long Island, Suffocation was giving new meaning to both musical brutality and technical wizardry. Up in Yonkers, Immolation was about to unleash one of death metal’s most cerebral, sophisticated monsters upon the world while a young Mortician was revving up the buzzsaws and Malignancy was about to get started. Some of the longest lasting, and in the cases of Suffocation and Immolation, most groundbreaking and successful careers in death metal history came from this era.
Over in Jersey, the scene was led by skronky, thrashy death act Ripping Corpse and their grindier pals in Human Remains, and had other promising acts such as Latshaw and Damonacy. To say that the fates of these bands were not parallel to their New York peers is an understatement. Ripping Corpse and Human Remains have proven to be extremely influential over the decades, but those bands, as well as Latshaw and Damonacy, were short-lived. Between all four acts, only one proper full length record was released.
That record was Ripping Corpse’s Dreaming with the Dead, and it starts by asking you if you smell the sweetness.
